Huddersfield's chairman Dean Hoyle to sleep at the club's stadium for a night

Hoyle will be joined by supporters and other high-profile local figures in the outdoor sleepover, with all money raised going to charities that support the homeless. 

Those wishing to get involved in the "Big Sleep Out" – which involves spending a night in the stands – must raise at least £100 each to take part.

The initiative has come in response to a request for financial aid from Huddersfield Mission.

Hoyle told Huddersfield's official website: “Having seen a funding plea from the Huddersfield Mission run by the Examiner, we decided this was something we could get involved with and make a real difference.

“We paid several visits to the Huddersfield Mission and the Mission Café and it quickly became clear to us that homelessness is a very complicated issue.

"Homelessness is not exclusive to people out on the street; there are so many people in our community who ‘sofa-surf’ or live in inadequate housing."
